You’ve all heard rumblings since last year that MTV would eventually expand its incredibly popular “Jersey Shore” franchise to include some separate cast member spinoffs, and today we’ve been given the g’head to blabbity blab blab that the network has indeed green-lit new programming that will feature Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio and Jenni “JWOWW” Farley. The two untitled reality projects, which will chronicle the lives all three, will begin production later this year and are slated to air in 2012.
“The ‘Jersey Shore’ cast is at the center of the show’s ongoing success and Nicole, Pauly D and Jenni have become household names as a result of their unique, sometimes outrageous and often hilarious personalities,” said Chris Linn, MTV executive vice president of programming and head of production. “We’re excited to put the spotlight on their lives away from the shore as they pursue their individual passions, careers and relationships.”
One series will focus on Snooks and JWOWW, giving fans a deeper look into their friendship, love lives and daily ups and downs. (Oooh, maybe they’ll film Snooki filming her infamous YouTube videos–so meta!) Pauly’s project will follow him on the road–best childhood pals in tow–as he builds his DJ career internationally. Just wait til you see their blowouts.
And you thought Italy was gonna be crazy…
